Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, and Golden Retriever are in the podium of America’s most popular dog breed according to the 2017 American Kennel Club ranking.

Leading the pack and maintaining the first position as the most popular dog breed in the U.S. is the Labrador Retriever, which continues to be the favorite when choosing the perfect four-legged match. This comes as no surprise, because this breed is the perfect companion for families with children. Due to their great trainability and intelligence, they are also amongst the best service and assistance dog breeds.

All three favorite breeds maintained their position in the ranking since the last few years. However, Labrador Retrievers achieved the longest reign, as they have been at the top of dog registrations across the country for 26 consecutive years.

German Shepherd on second place, followed by Golden Retrievers and Bulldogs, Beagles, Boxers, Rottweilers, amongst the top ten favorites, show that America prefers big dogs.

Here some more information about the America’s favorite dog breed:

Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is smart, obedient, and talented as well as the most popular breed in the world, according to the number of dogs registered worldwide. Their coat can be solid black or yellow, in all its variants, and chocolate brown. They are exceptionally talented and the perfect match for people of all ages. These great working dogs and caring companions can work well with children and seniors at therapy centers and nursing homes.

Their temperament is balanced, making them excellent for families, and very good as assistance dogs interacting perfectly with children of all ages and other animals. They tend however to be a little noisy, needing exercise, socialization and training. Due to their voracious appetite, they could be susceptible to health problems associated with overweight, poisoning, and ingestion of non edible objects or dangerous substances.
